From: Burkely Hermann

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Louisiana Public Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

Policies, procedures and/or documents pertaining to indexing for FamilySearch, otherwise known as Intellectual Reserve, Inc. or FamilySearch International, a genealogical non-profit operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) by inmates within facilities run by the Louisiana Department of Corrections. This includes any documents regarding Family History Centers operated within such facilities, and any documents referencing LDS Correctional Services, a division of LDS. Examples of such documents include contracts between the Louisiana Department of Corrections and FamilySearch, often called a "Memorandum of Understanding," with an attachment describing FamilySearch's assistance.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 3 business days, as the statute requires.

To Whom It May Concern:
I wanted to follow up on the following request, copied below. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response.
Thanks for your help, and let me know if further clarification is needed.

From: Department of Corrections

The Department of Public Safety and Corrections ("Department") is in receipt of your email requesting records that purport to be applications made pursuant to the Louisiana Public Records Act.

Please be advised that these requests seek thousands upon thousands of pages of documents - most of which are maintained in hard copy files only. Fees shall not be waived, and each document is subject to a 25 cent per page copy charge.

In order to begin processing the enclosed requests, the Department must insist upon a $2500 deposit made payable to the "Louisiana Department of Corrections." Once the check clears and the funds have been received, we will begin processing your request.

All the best,

DOC Public Records Staff
